Book Description

This book is a fun and rigorous introduction to pure mathematics, is suitable for both students and a general audience interested in learning what pure mathematics is all about. Pure mathematics is presented in a friendly, accessible, and nonetheless rigorous style.

The purpose of this book is to offer readers a fun mathematical learning experience without sacrificing or oversimplifying the mathematics. Pure, rigorous mathematics is presented with concise definitions, theorems and proofs; accompanying the mathematics are lively descriptions, colorful exposition, and analogies.

The goal is to share with readers through an active reading experience how mathematicians perceive and experience mathematics. It is vibrant, exciting, and dynamic, like the analogies used in this book to describe it.
